Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the ancient amphora from a small island on behalf of the Government and people of Cyprus to share space in this modern edifice of the great country. Amphoras of this type were extensively used in the ancient world of the Eastern Mediterranean. Throughout these eight thousand years, many civilizations and cultures have had their influence on Cyprus. The strategic location of Cyprus and its beauty and prosperity left it exposed to settlers and invaders from the three continents at the crossroads of which it lies Europe, Asia, and Africa. But Cyprus, having become part of the Greek world of antiquity through emigration by the Mycenaeans in the 14th Century B.C., to be followed by new waves of colonizers from Greece after the Trojan War, retained its basic character, language and traditions ever since.
